Hello, it’s my next retaliation build but concept is new, at least I did not see anyone posted anything similar. It’s commando using Vindictive Flame + Counter strike + Vire cascade + Flame Breath to melt enemies. Results were very good in all content, build is very safe and fast (and can be even safer with few cosmetic changes like crystals in jewelery or physique dump for HC players).
Choices I want to explain:
Helmet - Mask of Infernal Truth is BiS and better than Callagadra because of Flame Breath with 42% rata. We are lacking active retaliation skills so utilizing as many resources as possible outside of skill tree is needed to have good clearing speed.
Belt and medal - we need high OA to crit and resistances so these stats are way to go.
Armor - this choice due to additional rata (and elemental retal converted into physical) is fastest option from my tests but if you don’t want to fight for every single second in Crucible just go for Dread Armor of Azragor - it gives physical resistance + lifesteal and Ravager can be facetanked without pharma. Was around 10 average seconds slower in crucible and ravager but tankier.
Crucible 5:00 2+4 setup
SR 100 (could be easier with armor change)
SR 80 all bosses pulled
Ravager ~1:30 (with armor change he can be killed without pharma)
